Flexible AV solutions for divisible meeting spaces

In these divisible meeting rooms the space works smarter, thanks to the carefully considered array of AV technology, chosen to suit a wide variety of needs and events – while sensors offer automatic setting adjustment to suit room configurations.

Sensor-controlled AV for divisible rooms

Intuitive BYOD functionality

Flexibility to suit various event needs

Business Challenge

Leading facilities management company EMCOR UK are also at the forefront of the drive to make workspaces better, so it’s perhaps unsurprising that they chose Aura as their partner when it came to the installation of multiple, multidisciplinary AV solutions into the new offices of a national corporation. This project involved the installation of AV equipment across two sites. The first site required AV technology for a divisible suite (one primary and three secondary spaces, separated by folding partitions), a four-person room, and six eight-person rooms (comprising three collaborative lounge spaces and three meeting rooms). The second site required systems for a divisible suite and a large meeting room.

Aura Solution

At the first site, in the divisible suite, a wide-angle camera is positioned over an 85-inch Microsoft Surface Hub at the front of the room, while a presenter-facing PTZ camera is mounted at the rear. The room supports a couple of different audio options: a wireless headset microphone and handheld microphone are used for events, while a ceiling-mounted beamforming microphone array is used for video calls and the induction loop. An optical sensor set is fitted at each partition, enabling the system to automatically reconfigure to suit the room arrangement. The secondary spaces within the divisible suite are all BYOD, and feature a trolley-mounted 55-inch Sony LCD, which can be used with inputs including a laptop, wireless presentation dongle, or the conference soundbar mounted on the same trolley as the screen. 

It’s a similar situation in the four- and eight-person meeting rooms; some support BYOD and some Microsoft Surface Hub.

At the second site, the divisible suite features an 85-inch Sony commercial LCD, wall-mounted via an articulating bracket for easier maintenance access. There is a wide-angle camera mounted over the display, to capture the participants sitting at the table, and a PTZ camera at the rear of the room, to capture the presenter. Sound can be captured either via a wireless headset mic, wireless handheld mic, or ceiling mounted beamforming microphone array. The two wireless microphones are used for larger events and presented to the room via a set of ceiling speakers. The large meeting room has the same design as the primary room in the divisible suite, but with no partition or feeds.

“Partnering with Aura helped EMCOR UK demonstrate great capability on all aspects of this refurbishment project. Aura have proudly deserved the title of “partner of choice” in any future prospects!”
